The Lamp with the Shortest Lifespan

Which type of lamp has the shortest life expectancy?

A: fluorescent lamp

B: HID lamp

C: incandescent lamp

D: halogen lamp


The lamp with the shortest lifespan is the incandescent lamp.

The lamp with the shortest life expectancy is the incandescent lamp. Compared to the other options, incandescent lamps have a significantly shorter lifespan. This is primarily due to the type of lighting technology they use. Incandescent lamps work by heating a wire filament until it glows, a process that causes rapid deterioriation of the filament. While other lamp technologies such as fluorescent, HID (High-Intensity Discharge) and halogen lamps have more efficient processes, leading to a longer lifespan.
